Book Description

Through Gilly's Eyes by Matthew VanFossan

The Indie Book of the Day for 20th of September, 2013!

Genre: Memoir, Pets

Through Gilly’s Eyes is a moving coming-of-age story about a young man and the guide dog who loved him.

What would you do if you were sitting in school one morning and suddenly found you couldn’t see? When it happens to Matt VanFossan during his third year of college, it’s the start of a life he hasn’t planned on and definitely doesn’t want. When he’s paired with a new guide dog a few months later, he’s still in a state of denial.

But Matt’s new companion, named Gilly, isn’t one for self-pity – or modesty, as he describes himself as “one of the handsomest dogs at guide dog school.” A keen observer of the human condition, especially his human’s condition, Gilly provides a running commentary on Matt’s progress. And as Gilly and Matt learn to work together, the two gradually forge a relationship that transcends the ordinary bonds between dog and man.

From dog training school then back to college, from home and on to Brazil, Gilly relates their story with humor and insight. Through Matt’s challenging adventures, new friendships, and ultimately, lasting love, Gilly provides him with guidance and companionship for six years – a lifetime that will last forever.

Not a dog lover? You will be once you’ve finished this tale and looked at the world through Gilly’s eyes.
